Fans of HAIM know that sisters Alana, Danielle and Este are no strangers to dancing. From kicking up their boots in the ‘Little Of Your Love’ video, to the distanced choreography for their newest single, ‘I Know Alone’ to Alana recreating her childhood dance class moves on Instagram, these sisters are inspiring us all to don a leotard and get moving. Luckily, the trio will be hosting their very own classes on Zoom for the next four weeks, offering fans the chance to learn the choreography from four of their popular music videos.

Fans can sign up to receive invites to each Zoom class. The first will broadcast this Sunday, 17 May, featuring a lesson inspired by the ‘Want You Back’ video. Released in 2017, off Something To Tell You, and directed by Jake Schreier, the video features choreography from Ian Eastwood (whose credits include Justin Bieber, Childish Gambino and Zendaya).
The following Sunday, 24 May, the sisters will teach moves off ‘Little Of Your Love’, also from Something To Tell You. The video, which was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, finds the girls crashing a country-western style line dance. The song culminates in the sisters leading a full-on dance routine, as choreographed by country specialist Kyle Einsohn.
On 31 May, HAIM will present the moves to ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’, off their 2013 debut, Days Are Gone. The video, which finds the three sisters on a backlit stage, was directed by Warren Fu and features a routine by the award-winning choreographer Fatima Robinson, whose credits include Michael Jackson’s ‘Remember The Time’ video, Mary J Blige’s ‘Family Affair’ and Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’.
For the final class, on 7 June, the sisters will teaching the dance from their newest video, ‘I Know Alone’, off their forthcoming third album, Women In Music Pt. III. The video, shot while isolating at home, was directed remotely by Jake Schreier and choreographed by the band as well as by Francis and the Lights.
HAIM also performed their new single on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, each from their respective homes in Los Angeles via webcam. The lively set, which aired 29 April, culminated in a surprise laser show.
Originally due to be released 24 April, but pushed back amid the coronavirus, Women In Music Pt. III will now arrive on 26 June. “Things were changing so quickly that when we were supposed to put out our record, it just didn’t feel like an appropriate time to do so,” Alana Haim told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “Now that it feels like we’ve settled into this weird quarantine new normal life, we really just want to put it out.”
